Laser Therapy: An Effective, Noninvasive Alternative
Laser therapy is an effective alternative treatment for pets suffering from pain and swelling caused by chronic and acute conditions, including:
- Sprains and strains
- Degenerative disc and joint disease
- Back pain
- Muscle, ligament, or tendon injuries
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Periodontal disease
How Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy works by penetrating tissue with a beam of laser light to reduce pain and inflammation and to increase the flow of blood. Due to its noninvasive nature, laser therapy requires no sedation and often has a calming and soothing effect on pets. While many patients see immediate improvement after their first treatment, most require a series of treatments for optimal results. Therefore, cost and frequency of treatments may vary. This advanced therapy method is also used on humans by all major sports teams.
